This is not least the case for victims of online abuse; sites like Facebook and Twitter have become breeding grounds for very real hate. New research by the disability charity Leonard Cheshire, released today, shows online disability hate crime has soared in the last year, with recorded incidents up by almost a third.
Leonard Cheshire himself simply took in and cared for someone who needed it. Then did it again, again, and built a system that has done it thousands of times.
He’s not been dead that long but now that provision of glorious charity is colonised by the sort of idiots who worry about Tweets.
Sad really, but then that’s colonialism for you.
